Here's my only entry here: An actual Trophy Girl!
Walter Docker and Bob Mullany, on a new ('65?)Hornet from his Dads shop that raced that day. Note the sprocket !! No idea what the Trophy Girl's Banner says,.... if it was important ;~)

Lord have mercy - hadn't thought of Billy and Benny McCrary for years, "Worlds Heaviest Twins", pro wrestlers weighing about 740 pounds each. The bike mags of the 70s used to show them riding Honda Mini-Trail 70cc bikes around, a real testament to the strength of Honda bikes. Even an Indonesian family of 5 riding on the same bike with a load of ducks and pigs on the back wouldn't amount to as much weight as these guys did ..... !

Their grave in Hendersonville NC is a tourist attraction now for people riding through the mountains down there ....

That looks like Lee Marvin. He was known to be a rather good rider.
If the bike is new, the photo would have been taken in 1956 - '58.

I'm doubting that's Lee Marvin. If that's 1956 like the bike, he was only 32 years old at the time. This dude looks older than that.....

An early gray beard like me, then. I knew there was some reason I use him for my avatar!

They definitely did, no doubt. The way they dressed, certainly helped. It looks like Lee Marvin was one of those lucky (unlucky) guys who starts greying unnaturally early!

Linda Dugeau, it says.

I didn’t think it would be necessary to name-check Lee Marvin up there.
